Norse - A giantess. Goddess of the underworld. Daughter of Gymir and Angerbode. One of the Asynjur, in some accounts. Frey fell in love with her but despaired of ever winning her. His servant, Skirnir, in return for Frey's magic sword, rode to Jotunheim and wooed her on behalf of Frey. She refused the offer of golden apples and even the ring, Draupnir, and was unmoved when Skirnir threatened her with his sword. He finally persuaded her by cutting runes which would have prevented any suitor from wooing her in the future. She met Frey at Buri nine days later and they married.
